Isn't the Love of Jesus Something Wonderful!


http://youtu.be/UZv3jzOTE70

Hymn John w. Peterson 1921

There will never be a sweeter story...story of the Saviour's love divine.
Love that bro't Him from the realms of glory
Just to save a sinful soul like mine.


Isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful, wonderful, wonderful,
O' isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful! Wonderful it is to me
.

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mar was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Matthew 1:18

And she shall bring forth a son and thou shalt call his name JESUS for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21


And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. Mark 10:27

And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the LORD. St. Luke 1:46

Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. St. Luke 15:10

Boundless as the universe around me, Reaching to the farthest soul away
Saving, keeping love it was that found me
That is why my heart can truly say...

Isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful, wonderful, wonderful
O' isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful! Wonderful it is to me.


For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:16-17

Love beyond our human comprehending, Love of God in Christ- how can it be!
This will be my theme and never ending, Great redeeming love of Calvary.


Isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful, wonderful, wonderful
O' isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful! Wonderful it is to me.

These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said,
Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
As thou hast given him power over all flesh that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. John 17:1-4

For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. John 17:8

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12

But God commendeth his love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful, wonderful, wonderful
O' isn't the love of Jesus something wonderful! Wonderful it is to me.


And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we my know him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. I John 5:20

He came....He died...He did his Father's work...he rose again!


No longer a babe in a manger............But sent to set men free!
No longer a babe in a manger...........but a risen Saviour is HE!
No longer a babe in a namger..........My Lord and God and King!
           Isn't the LOVE of Jesus....such a wonderful thing!

Another song to share...

May God bless you in the New Year!
Hope

I grew up singing songs from J.W. Peterson. A couple of years ago I talked on line with his grandson who is in the music biz (Christian). He forwarded an email I sent to him praising the writings of his grandfather and I actually received an email back from J.W. I treasure it and his music!

Blessings to you for God's best for 2012.

Love, Rebecca
